Local Information

Korcula is famous for its quaint fishing villages, winding coastline, fertile olive trees and vineyards growing award winning grapes. Boasting delicious food, dramatic scenery and fascinating cultural and historical sites, this island has the best of all worlds and is virtually undiscovered.

Korcula Town itself is only a 5km drive or 15 minute boat journey from Sapphire, and is often affectionately named ‘Little Dubrovnik’ for its many similarities to that iconic city. The main town itself is on a peninsula, with many little lanes leading directly down to the water’s edge. It was built under Venetian influences, the old town is shaped in a fish bone, acting as an architectural form of air conditioning to keep its inhabitants cool and comfortable, protected from the effects of the wind and the sun. There are no cars here, and each charming cobbled street has something new to offer around each corner. There are many excellent restaurants and bars here, with wonderful views of the sea.

Spend your days on the water, exploring the many secluded beaches and bays. Head in to town for a delicious lunch of fresh grilled fish, before heading back to your villa to relax in the afternoon sun with a good book.

Our View

The foundations of this beautiful sea front villa date all the way back to 1498, when it was the Dominican Monastery of St. Nikola. Later, in 1656, the building was converted, and the top floor became the “Frušturica”, accommodation of pilgrims and travelers of the governor, while the lower arc shaped part of the building, located on the shore of the sea, became a porthole for boats to be pulled from the harbour. Now, over three hundred years later, the two floors join harmoniously to make a beautiful waterfront villa for our clients, and we can’t wait for you to see it!

The layout is perfect for families as all the bedrooms are found on one floor, so you will not be too far from your little ones. From table tennis and glass bottomed canoes to Korcula town just 500m away, there is so much on offer here to keep the entire family entertained.
